Preparing Your Fence for Spring/Summer
Winter can take its toll on your property, and your fence takes the brunt of much harsh winter weather. Standing out in the wind, rain, ice, snow, and freezing temperatures, your fence can take quite a beating all winter long. When the spring arrives, it’s important to give it a thorough going-over, to make sure it’s ready for the spring and summer seasons.
- First, give your fence a thorough inspection. Look it over for any signs of damage, making note of what needs to be repaired and what could stand to be replaced. Pay attention to peeling, chipping, damaged boards or posts, along with damaged latches and any other problems you may find, taking care to make a list as you go.
- Give your fence a good cleaning. You can use a mild detergent and warm water for most fences, though if your fence is in bad shape, a pressure washer may be a good idea. Once you’ve cleaned it, make sure to rinse off all soap.
- Notice how your landscaping is interacting with your fence. Prune back limbs or vegetation that could be too close to the fence and might damage it. You want to protect the structural integrity of the fence, so keep vegetation from growing around the fence and potentially weakening it structurally. This will help your fence to last longer.
